AWARD Fellow Jane Ambuko, a Kenyan agricultural scientist, was recently appointed by the Food and Agriculture Program of the United Nations (FAO) to the prestigious team of High Level Panel of Experts (HLPE) on Food Losses and Wastes.
The only woman on the five-member team of distinguished international experts, Ambuko will work on the panel’s report on Food Losses and Waste in the Context of Sustainable Food Systems, to be published in May 2014. The report will feed into the policy debates of the United Nations Committee on World Food Security (CFS) next year. The HLPE is the science-policy interface of the CFS, which is the foremost international and intergovernmental multi-stakeholder platform on food security and nutrition. An HLPE report is a high visibility and high impact enterprise.
